Authorities say a student opened fire in the cafeteria of his Washington state high school Friday, killing a classmate and wounding at least four others before taking his own life. All of the victims are young people, and three are in critical condition with gunshot wounds to the head. Authorities said they did not yet know what may have motivated the assailant Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MARYSVILLE MAYOR JON NEHRING, SAYING: "Obviously we are deeply saddened by the tragic events today at Marysville Pilchuck High School. There is really no words to describe this type of tragedy." Witnesses described the gunman as a well-liked freshman and member of the school's wrestling and football teams. They said he walked into the school's cafeteria at lunchtime and opened fire at a table of classmates.
